They have many names but the common international name is actually just 'Red', or sometimes 'Tall Red' to distinguish from the short form, 'Dwarf Red'. Some other common names include 'Morado', 'Colorado' and 'Red Dacca'.

Default Re: red bananas

Thanks for the info Gabe. So are there basically two forms? The Tall and dwarf? Are there other varieties? Or Just different names for them? I see them in the grocery stores, one is very dark maroon and green and larger (grown in Equador), the other is smaller and ripens to a yellowish red or copper color (I think they were from (Costa Rica and Nicaragua) . I like those.
Thanks
John
